Argentina to develop new UAVs

28 July 2014

The Argentine government, through its Ministry of Defence, has confirmed its intention to develop a new line of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for surveillance of the national sea and territory.

This new line of short- and medium-range UAVs - would be unarmed but fitted with surveillance tools. They would build on the evolution of other Argentine development projects, such as the army's Lipan UAV.

The project has been awarded to state-company INVAP, which is to produce the new UAVs with one 100% local technology and workers.

INVAP is also committing to the SARA (Aerial Argentine Robotic System) project, a long-term programme to develop type I, type II, and type III UAVs in Argentina for both military and civil uses.
